In Hypixel Skyblock, Mining Fortune is a big part of the game. For all mining related money making methods in the game, the more mining fortune you have, the more money you make.
Mining Fortune Mechanics
Mining Fortune is a stat that grants the player a chance to obtain additional drops from every ore mined. It is applied when breaking specific blocks like Coal Ore, Iron Ore, Gold Ore, Lapis Lazuli Ore, Redstone Ore, Emerald Ore, Diamond Ore, Nether Quartz Ore, Dwarven Gold, Mithril, Titanium, and Gemstone.
- Calculating Drops: The formula for the amount of ores received when breaking an ore is:
(100% + (Mining Fortune * 1%)). For example, with 150 Mining Fortune, the player would have a guaranteed chance to get 2x drops and a 50% chance to get 3x drops.
Armor Upgrades and Sets:
- Sorrow Armor: This set offers a substantial increase in Mining Fortune, particularly when combined with jade gemstones and the Jaderald reforge. The full set can provide an additional +120 Fortune.
- Divan’s Armor: Divan’s Armor is a superior choice, offering +150 Fortune with the full set. Utilizing gemstone chambers and jaderald reforges enhances the set’s efficiency.
- Specialized Sets: For gemstone mining, a combination of 3/4ths sa armor with a superior chestplate, all recombed with jaderald reforge and fine/flawless/perfect topaz gemstones is recommended. However, for other types of mining, Divan or Sorrow armors are more effective.
